Abstract

Transesophageal echocardiogram is a very safe procedure, however, it is not devoid of complications. We report a case of esophageal dissection complicating transesophageal echocardiogram in a 52-year-old man who was treated conservatively. Moreover, we review briefly the complications of transesophageal echocardiogram.
